Over the last few months, thousands of San Franciscans have mobilized to demand city leaders shift their priorities from benefiting the 1% to focusing on a city for the rest of us: Saving City College; stopping housing displacement; demanding corporate accountability; demanding affordable housing; and working to close the achievement and opportunity gaps in our public schools.
Until now, these have been disparate movements, but on Monday December 9th, nearly 20 groups and hundreds of students, teachers, and community members will unite for a day of action to Reclaim the Promise for our public schools and affordable housing.
Our action is part of a National Day of Action sponsored by thousands of union members, advocates, and organizers in over 60 cities across the country all calling for educational and social justice.
Together, we are demanding that Mayor Lee and City Hall focus on reclaiming lost taxes for our schools and vital services, stopping displacement until there is affordable housing for all, and investing in Our City College!
Join us on Monday at 4:30 p.m. at 9th and Market Street for a march and candlelight vigil to expose corporate tax cheats who represent tax and public policies gone wrong. Together we can stop displacement, invest more in City College, and win tens of millions of dollars for our public schools and vital services.
